Since PMLN made its government after winning the most controversial elections in the history of Pakistan the Party members started a campaign on the very next day that everybody should work to strengthen the democracy in Pakistan. In last government of PPP Pakistan Army joined hands with the civil government to work for the democracy but that government was failed to achieve the targets they set before elections e.g. basic necessities of life and also the promises they made. When PMLN came into government they also promised to bring a revolutionary change but that came just in dreams. People of Pakistan had too many expectations that the new government will take some good steps but nothing was done in their favor and as a result of that people started protests against them and opposition parties launched a proper campaign against the sitting government.
Pakistan Tehreek Insaaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek started protests in several cities against the wrong steps and misuse of public money. Pakistan tehreek.e.Insaaf is the victim of the May, 2013 elections and they claim that they lost almost 35 seats. Nationwide rallies were conducted and huge number of supporters gathered to support the cause and to bring down the government. Government kept on saying that the deep state is trying to bring down their government but reality is different from that. All the members of PMLN used media and gave statements against the Army and Intelligence agencies that they are trying to impose Marshal Law but military leadership extended full support to the civil government. Load shedding, Inflation, CNG issue, Election rigging and high rate of religious extremism were the issues that PMLN was unable to solve and without bothering about them they kept on visiting the foreign countries in public money. Pakistan Army was deployed in Islamabad under the article 245 to control the security situation of Capital City. Read the rest of this entry »

Mr. Zulfiqar Ali was investigating the murder of Mrs. Benazir Bhutto, the former PM of Pakistan. He was also involved in the investigations of the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed. The deceased was shot down in Islamabad on 3rd May. In the ensuing response by his bodyguard, one of the attackers got injured.
The injured attacker has been identified as Abdullah Omar, the son of an army colonel who was court martial after his ties with Al-Qaida were discovered.
“Abdullah Omar was part of the team that ambushed Chaudhary Zulfiqar near his residence in Islamabad on 3rd May,” senior police officer, Jamil Hashmi, told the correspondent of a media outlet.

The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Monday said leaders of the PML-N had started disappointing masses through their statements. “Masses have voted the PML-N to power to lessen their difficulties and not to take note of their fictional statements which are adding to the disappointment,” it said.
PEW President Dr Murtaza Mughal said Ddjected and highly demoralized masses deserved to see a difference between the incumbent and the former corrupt rulers. He said some recent statements regarding load shedding and energy crisis indicated that the federal ministers were speaking the language of the powerful lobbies that might have financed their election campaigns.
Mughal said one of the federal ministers had targeted the CNG sector, levelling allegations of theft against it while conveniently ignoring influential sectors responsible for annual theft of around Rs 250 billion of electricity and natural gas.
Majority of CNG stations involved in theft of natural gas are owned by PML-N and PPP leaders. Some influential owners of CNG outlets will never pay gas bills amounting to millions of rupees but would enjoy uninterrupted gas supply even during the load shedding. Read the rest of this entry »

May 11, 2013 has been announced as polling day. Scrutiny of nominations papers has been completed and submission of appeals to election tribunals and their decisions ended on 16th. Final list will be issued on 18th. Election campaign will reach feverish pitch from 19 April. Notwithstanding the eagerness of the candidates and voters, security environment are not conducive for holding smooth, fair and free elections. Punjab is the only province where the security situation is not as bad because governance of Punjab government was far better than in other provinces.
Besides security concerns and fears that elections will be bloody, there is growing skepticism over the impartiality of caretakers and Election Commission (EC). Questions asked by the Returning Officers to ascertain whether the candidates fulfill the requirements of Articles 62 and 63 have generated a heated debate. The main objection is that focus should have been on financial impropriety rather than on testing candidate’s knowledge of Islam. Seculars are in ugly mood and are demanding scrapping of Gen Zia invented Articles in the constitution, not realizing that these were duly approved by the outgoing parliament while introducing 18th Amendment.

“Take counsel with them in the conduct of affairs; and when you are resolved, put your trust in Allah. Allah loves those that trust (in Him) . Al-Imran 159.
It’s the political doctrine that determines or establishes other cultures in a society, be it social, economic, educational or any other. If we study the various political systems in the world today every society is moulded and guided by the political systems that it adopts or follows. Some political systems are very repressive and some may be very liberal and yet there are a few that follow the centre of the road. The parties that run or establish these systems first of all adopt the system within itself. If the party that does not practice what it professes then it’s going to be a chaos. Today Pakistan is in a complete mess not knowing where to head; the following of all the parties is based on personality cults, not on the teachings of Islam. The Muslims had the best system that was based on equality and social justice, this was the basic reason that the Muslims governed the world but unfortunately today the very Muslim rulers are not prepared to adopt it.
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) used to consult his companions often on all the matters of the state and enforcement of sharia. He was ordained by Allah (SWT) to do so; why? Because, when the companions are consulted the implementation and acceptance becomes easier.
He had some very strong advisors in the persons of Amir Hamza, his uncle, Abu Bakr Siddique, Omar bin Khattab, Usman Ghani, Ali bin Abu Talib and many more names that can be mentioned. If a Prophet who had all the support of Allah, who could never go wrong, felt the need to consult his companions then how on earth can the pigmies of the leadership run their affairs without any solid consultation?
It is evidently clear that consultation is a must and no decision of an individual can be enforced upon others without their consent which has not been discussed with them. It’s only the cult leaders who take decisions in isolation and their followers have been blinded who have no choice but to accept. Read the rest of this entry »

The people got disillusioned with democracy run by politicians from 1988 to 1999 because of the lackadaisical performance of the two mainstream political parties, each having two turns. Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif instead of concentrating towards welfare of the people consumed their energies in debasing each other and in corrupt practices. As a consequence to their vindictive and anti-people politics, their tenures got restricted to two to three years. The people got so fed up of the unprincipled politicians that they welcomed Gen Pervez Musharraf when he seized power on October 12, 1999 through a bloodless coup.
PPP Jayalas distributed sweets and Benazir offered to cooperate with the military dictator. None mourned the illegal booting out of democratically elected regime of Nawaz that had gained power with two-thirds majority in February 1997 and had the honor of making Pakistan 7th nuclear state and only one in the Muslim world. No protests were launched when Nawaz was awarded life sentence.
Musharraf made a good start under his well-conceived seven point program but started to drift when he held a farcical presidential referendum to get himself elected. He then carved out a King’s Party consisting of turncoats from PML-N and PPP and ensured its success through manipulation in 2002 elections. His decision to fight the US dictated war on terror after 9/11, acceptance of all the seven demands of Washington and persecution of Islamists were castigated by the religious right and conservatives. However, it was MMA which got him elected through the act of parliament in 2004 after passing 17th amendment in the constitution. Since Musharraf held all the controls, he managed to ensure good governance and pushed forward his reform and development programs. Read the rest of this entry »

When an aggressor foresees the defeat coming, it resorts to massive killing and destruction of the habitats and tries to undo the “fear of unknown.” The recent killing of 24 Pakistani sleeping military men is the outcome of this American strategy working across Pakistan and Afghanistan. Late historian Professor Howard Zinn used to argue that “history is a weapon” that can not be ignored. This week in a CNN talk, famous American author David McCullough (author of Truman and John Adams) reminded the audience that history is a powerful reader and a weapon for change and development of a nation. How strange that most Pakistanis seem to have neglected the role of modern history in their search for change and adaptability to the future.

Devoid of common sense and lessons of the living history, Pakistan is run by dead politicians who lack even self-consciousness –moral or intellectual identity, and whose record is full of crimes and corruption against the very people they claim to represent. The ruling Bhutto family-PPP now under Asif Zardari and his colleagues have infected the body politics of Pakistan with corruption and political tyranny, draining out all of the positive thinking and creative energies of the nation for change, development and for a promising future. Strangely and alarming appears to be the emotional outburst and mindless behavior of some hired agents of the Pakistani landscape to celebrate the day of Miss Bhutto who was killed in a political gathering. If there is any law and justice to protect the interests of the people of Pakistan, Zardari and his gang must be tried in a court of law for systematic and on-going corruption and killing of the population. In some instances, they were indicted but continue to rule the people. These political thugs and indicted criminals should not be allowed to hold offices of public responsibility. The besieged nation MUST see itself in the mirror and learn from the dead past, to change the future course of history and to articulate a new beginning – a new political system under the new educated generation of honest, intelligent and visionary leadership to strive for a promising future.

Alarmed by the growing popularity of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), two bitter rivals of the past have started warming up to each other. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif has conveyed to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leadership that his party will not obstruct the Senate election scheduled for March next year. As a quid pro quo, he demanded that the government announce fresh parliamentary elections immediately after the Senate polls.
Officials from both the PPP and PML-N told The Express Tribune that the two parties were readjusting their positions on the fluid political chessboard and might reach an understanding soon. They admitted that the ‘unmatched’ rise of the PTI was the trigger behind this. Officials said Sharif’s message was delivered to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani by ‘top PML-N leaders’ a week ago. The prime minister then shared it with the PPP leadership at the meetings of its parliamentary party and core committee.
Both sides confirmed that they have negotiated in recent weeks, but did not say their talks were meant specifically to evolve a consensus on checking Imran Khan’s growing popularity. “This is a proposal from Mian Sahib (Sharif) … but has never been a point of discussion for us,” said PPP Information Secretary Qamar Zaman Kaira. “Let’s see what happens,” was his answer when asked whether Khan’s gains could draw the two parties closer to each other.

The Pakistani political system has failed and is taking the country down. Here are three important signs in 2011: flawed party elections, influx of illegal weapons through airports, and parties running armed militias.
SPECIAL REPORT | PakNationalists.com
The Pakistani political system has reached a dead end. No reminders are required when we have an elected government led by individuals whose record for integrity and competence are questionable at best and possibly the worst in the nation’s modern history.
But in recent days Pakistanis have seen three signs that confirm our worst fears: that our political system is beyond repair. It can’t be repaired through repeated elections and requires surgery to shape a new system that is both disciplined and forward-looking.
Here are three cases that confirm this. Read the rest of this entry »
